Default Knox Free Rom list?

Is there any kind of ongoing list that is being kept for knox free roms? The last thing I want to do is break my knox counter, and I'm looking for a new rom, but some of them aren't that straightforward, so I'm not sure if I can use them. If there is, can someone please point me in that direction? If not maybe it would be worth starting one here.

Flashing a ROM is not going to break your Knox counter, the only way to break your Knox counter is to update your bootloader to a Knox one (4.3+) and flash a recovery, as long as you don't do that you can flash anything, and all ROMs are Knox free, firmware will contain the Knox bootloader so that's what you need to stay away from, updating from Odin, kies, and obviously otas.

If you already have Knox on your phone, pretty much any ROM besides the official ROM will trip the Knox counter. Even flashing the official ROM via Odin can trip the counter.

You can also use the triangle app from chainfire to reset the counter

And, reading and use of search also helps!
